Topical / Burning Questions


Hi. Im looking at revising and updating for a new course on licensing and law and open data. Do any of you have any burning issues or questions you would like to see included?

Hit reply and I’ll see what I can do!




I really enjoyed the course. It did a great job of explaining the legal aspects of opening data in a simple way.

I would like to see some practical exercises added to reinforce the concepts presented, such as:

  • as a consumer, correctly attributing data you re-use (checkout this example).
  • as a publisher, providing guidance on how you’d like the data to be attributed.
  • a super tough exercise dealing with nested copyright.

I’d highly recommend this course if want to increase your confidence in publishing or consuming open data.
